Mrs. Seeley's Weekly Stats

February 8-12



In reading we’ll focus on the main idea and supporting details. When a student focuses on what’s important in nonfiction books, he will be deciding what is worthy to be remembered. This is such a difficult skill to master, but it is so important. My goal is to teach kids to ask questions and to have conversations regarding how they decide what’s important or not important. You can help by reading and talking about nonfiction books that your child reads for homework.

Phonics - This week we will focus on the sound spellings for /oo/-book and /oo/ in moon.


We will be writing a nonfiction book about mammals. We will focus on writing important facts about various different mammals. Our text feature focus will be table of contents and bold words.


We will begin a unit on place value with recognizing numbers as groups of tens and ones.

Please continue to use the flash cards sent home in the homework folder to review addition and subtraction facts.

Social Sciences

This week we will be studying mammals.
